It's all arachnid-y in here

I just realized I have a pretty hefty backlog of photographs from this spring and summer still, which is cool since two of my lenses aren't really working right now and I'm not sure when I can get them fixed. So today you will have spiders. Snazzy spiders. They're not gonna hurt you, don't worry. (Top to bottom:  some kind of jumping spider feasting on a cranefly? Mayfly? Giant Lichen Orb Weaver, a funnel spider type, and another sort of jumping spider) Macro Monday Our World Tuesday Nature Notes

Sorry about your lenses, but thanks for the fabulous spider pics! Super cool. I wanna take a nap on that funnel web, tho' I don't think I'd be welcome. And I always have time for salticids. =)

I hope you can get your lenses fixed. The detail on these spiders is incredible.

I envy your lenses for these spiders! I am trying to shoot them too, but so difficult because of the wind while they are on their webs. I posted some in my other site www.abagillon.blogspot.com. This is not what i linked here for macro monday, haha! thanks.

Wow..I love these images as I have quite a few that are not very good, but I am motivated and over my fear of them. Gotta love the dance of the jumping spiders....Michelle
